Then I had to have some linkage to open and close it.
So off to the plasma table to cut some more. I drew up several ideas on paper and this one worked the best.
The linkage has to have an 8" stroke, as they want the throat wide open. And it has to close completely. When I had everything tacked the mechanism slid back and forth freely. Once I welded it up it has a little resistance in the last two inches of opening. Either the shebang warped a bit, or some weldberries are stuck within the slide mechanism somewhere.

I figure it will loosen up with usage.

It's the only excitement I had in the rain today.
